How to Beat that 2:30 Feeling
[caption id="attachment_11327" align="alignright" width="226" caption="The doctor will see you now..."][/caption] The first year of physician residency training is to mental endurance what the Ironman triathlon is to physical endurance. You constantly feel as if you are overwhelmed, futility is evident in the majority of your tasks, and there is always someone ahead of you in the race that is better at what you do than you are.

The user (read: employee) can then decide how much of said paper is required for their next note, and simply tear off the mini-memo. It even comes complete with a small pocket to store each one. What will they think of next! By the way, they also lend themselves to the desktop animal paper art - shown below. Can you say "origami"? [nggallery id=135] [Source: Matomeno]
